and three got winds at 35 miles per hour in laguardia and a 43 mile-per-hour wind gust in islip and a 46 mile-per-hour wind gust in annapolis. still snowing pretty good in rockaway. they're going to get accumulation along the shore, about the inland we're looking at 3 to 6 inches northern new jersey, some of the burbs in new york and up toward hartford. they already have 3 inches on the ground, so that's kind of cool i think. i just love snow. it relaxes me. that's all. oh, this is winter. i'm sorry, it's not windsor earlier today. it's snowing to beat the ban at about noon, but the temperature wasn't falling. it was still above freezing and yes, it can snow above freezing. now the temperature is about 30 and it's sticking very nicely in the windsor area. live look outside, temperatures in the 40s. this is our live weather cam brought to you by michael and son, 44, dew points in the upper 20s, winds out of the north at 15 and will continue to increase both in speed and frequently. pressure now rising at 2.92 inches of america -- 29.92 inches of mercury, pretty big band of snow through no
cancellations. take a look at the board here. sort of hit or miss. this is laguardia airport. the 6:00 a.m. is on time, but the 6:15 has been cancelled. if you look down the line, it's a similar situation. the 7:00 on time. the 7:59 is cancelled. the advice is that you're just going to have to call your airline. yesterday they were recommending that passengers actually cancel or rearrange their flights to avoid that area if possible. it really depends on your need and when you need to be to your destination. but keep in mind that there is a possibility that you could see cancellations and delays today. if you are flexible, you might want to do that. certainly you're going to want to call your airline ahead of time. the flights in the new york area, they had many, many cancellations yesterday. as of 4:00 p.m. yesterday, 1,300 flights cancelled. 40% of them were at the newark airport. still expecting big problems there today. whenever you see cancellations, you see the trickle down effect. they have difficulty moving plains around, and that causes problems elsewhere in the country. the adv
flights canceled heading into jfk, laguardia, newark, from reagan national. but into the late morning and early afternoon, it is looking a whole lot better. now the worst of it was actually yesterday evening, between 1200 and 1300 flights were canceled across the northeast because of this nor'easter. train traffic also tied up. just look at the long lines last night for the long island railroad. snow-covered tracks suspended service for several hours. it since resumed running but only on a limited schedule. remember, this nor'easter moved ashore in the exact same location as superstorm sandy. nearly 800,000 homes and businesses are still without power. some people had just gotten their power back and then lost it for a second time the same day. i mean can you imagine the frustration? so while these cancellations are certainly no fun for flyers, especially business travelers, just keep in mind it could be a whole lot worse. at reagan national, i'm kristin fisher, 9news now. >> so of course check with your airline before you head out and hopefully you won't be delayed. >>> the boy scout
not want to deal with this right now. moderate to heavy snow. winds gusting to 43 mph att laguardia in the past hour. some of our brain may mix with snow overnight as the storm goes away. another very nasty nor'easter. more on how to ocean city is dealing with the storm. >> it appears to ocean city has dodged yet another bullet shot at it by mother nature. all we are dealing with right now as you can see here on the boardwalk is light rain. as far as winds are concerned, we saw sustained winds throughout the day anywhere from 15-25 m.p.h. with us here and there at about 30-35 mph. one similarity -- waves from 6- 10 feet, was on par with what we saw during santee. the same low lying areas for flooding we always see it in their -- in addition city came earlier. we head into high tide around 2:30 tomorrow morning. overall, another bullet dodged here in ocean city. officials and residents alike breathing a sigh of relief after dealing with sandy last week. >> staying warm at home tonight is not an option for more than a dozen people in anne arundel county. if fire ripped through in -- a
to be open with limited flights. both from laguardia airport will be starting at 7:00 a.m. 3 occupants or more will have to be in the car to go over the east bridges. it is to help out a huge traffic problem going on around the city. there has been a gas shortage as well as you can image. the drivers literally are running out of gas because they can't fill the reservations they already have. >>> at that time pee ann the new york stock exchange is going to be opening once again today. yesterday they had reopened but this is the first since the blizzard of 1888. >>> battory park new york. thank you. >>> president obama getting an up close look at sandy's devastation in new jersey. it comes after chris christie continues to touch residents with their compassion. >> (poor audio) >> i just want everybody to get help. >> now both president obama and mitt romney will be back on the campaign trail with five days left until the election. doug luzader is live for us. >> those are tough images. these are the latest poll numbers coming out from fox. the race tied up 46 a piece. that tightens sligh
to be in operation today and once submerged laguardia airport will reopen at 7:00 with very limited service. >> much lower manhattan though is still in the dark. thousands of residents in hoboken new jersey across the river from manhattan have been given ready to eat meals and other supplies from the national guard. along the new jersey shore, president obama and governor chris christie took a helicopter hour of the storm damage because that's the only way to see it. >> kristin fisher is here with us this morning and kristin, you were out in the field. you were in rehoboth. and just give us an idea again of what you saw and what's going on now. >> reporter: well, it's tough to compare the two because what i found in rehoboth is nothing compared to what we're now seeing in new york and new jersey with you know, up and down the coast. millions of people remaining in the dark. the damage in the billions of dollars. and the death toll now at least 63 people. yesterday president obama brought some hope to hard hit new jersey, promising immediate federal aid and pledging to be in its for the lang howl. he
the flooding mess at laguardia just a couple of days ago. that airport now open with a limited schedule. both jfk and newark which had already opened on a limited basis, are expected to be in full operation by tomorrow. overall, flight cancellations as a result of sandy are now near 21,000. getting around new york is still a huge challenge. this was the scene in brooklyn today. thousands in line waiting to get on a city bus for a ride into manhattan. that line was four people deep. it literally wrapped around the block and most of them would normally be taking the subway into manhattan. but that service is still quite limited. because of the emergency public transportation in the city is free of charge today and tomorrow. >>> the other long lines we're seeing are the ones for gas. >> and just outside new york city, in manacay, new jersey, jim rosenfield is there for how long people are waiting to fuel up. >> reporter: it's a lonely job these days for manager muhammad edris in his station. open for business, but with no juice, it's no go at the pumps. >> we have no gas, nothing, you know. noth
is seeing more arrivals than departures, but net back to normal. courtney reagan is at laguardia this morning. >> reporter: good morning. so we haven't yet seen a plane take off here. the first plane is scheduled to take off in about 40 minutes from now. i've been here for over an hour and i got to say, i have never seen laguardia so quiet. i think there are more employees here than passengers. and i went counter to counter and american airlines basically said when i asked how many flights were scheduled to take off, it is very, very limited. he said it will keep changing all day long. air tran said they don't have a plane taking off until 1:00. it's like you were talking about earlier with that coordination, you have to get all the people in the right places. so i think laguardia will see what jfk and newark saw yesterday with more arrivals than departures. normally about 1,000 flights a data off from laguardia. we won't get anywhere close to that. and getting the employees here is also another challenge. we still have mass kratransit limited. so that will be tough. >> courtney,
